Price of Raspberry Pi 4B with 2GB RAM Drops to $35 Permanently

Filed under
Linux

Raspberry Pi 1 Model B was introduced to the world almost exactly 8 years ago on February 29, 2012, and to celebrate the Raspberry Pi Foundation decided to permanently lower the price of Raspberry Pi 4B with 2GB RAM to $35.

This was made possible due to falling RAM prices. The 1GB RAM version will still be sold for $35 to industrial and commercial customers due to long term support commitments. Sadly, the 4GB RAM version remains at $55, so no discount for this version for now.

Raspberry Pi 4 Linux computer gets twice the RAM and USB-C power

  • Raspberry Pi 4 Linux computer gets twice the RAM and USB-C power fix

    The Raspberry Pi line has provided great little Linux computers to nerds -- its low price and small size makes it ideal for tinkering and doing projects. But also, the device has proven to be a solid media device, wonderful for watching videos and emulating classic video games. In other words, it has been a very versatile computer, serving as many things to many people.

    With the release of the Raspberry Pi 4, however, it finally became powerful enough to serve as a true desktop computer. By installing a Linux distribution, some people can use it for day-to-day computer use, such as web browsing, playing media, and word processing. Unfortunately, the $35 base model came with a paltry 1GB of RAM. Today, this changes, as the company has dropped the price of the 2GB version to $35, effectively doubling the memory for the base model.

Bye Bye 1GB Pi

  • Bye Bye 1GB Pi

    The 2GB RAM model of Raspberry Pi 4 has dropped in price by $10 to the $35 — the same as the 1GB. The price drop followed the confirmation last week that a new RPi 4 has been released that fixes the USB Type-C problem.

    The Raspberry Pi Foundation celebrated the 8th birthday of the original Raspberry Pi SBC by cutting the price of the the previously $45 2GB LPDDR4 Raspberry Pi 4 Model B model to $35. Although the 1GB RAM model will still be available, it will likely fade quickly as the 2GB model assumes the role of the entry-level SKU. The 4GB DDR4 model stays at $55.

Raspberry Pi 4 Linux Computer with 2GB RAM Gets a Price Cut

  • Raspberry Pi 4 Linux Computer with 2GB RAM Gets a Price Cut

    If you’ve been holding out on buying the latest Raspberry Pi 4 computer, now it’s the perfect time to do so as the 2GB RAM model costs less. On their eighth birthday, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced today that you buy the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with 2GB RAM for only $35 USD.

    Until today, the retail price of the 2GB RAM Raspberry Pi 4 model was $45 USD, so a $10 USD cut goes a long way as people will get more RAM for the same price.

    It also turns out that the 1GB RAM Raspberry Pi 4 model is still on sale, but why would you get it if you can have double the RAM for the same price?

Raspberry Pi 4 Linux Computer Upgrade Adds 1Gb of RAM and USB-C

  • Raspberry Pi 4 Linux Computer Upgrade Adds 1Gb of RAM and USB-C

    The Raspberry Pi line Linux computers are serving the nerds and geeks just perfectly. The price of this computer is small, which makes it very affordable, and its an excellent device for doing projects as well as other tinkerings.

    The Raspberry Pi line Linux computers is also a suitable media device, which makes it great for watching videos as well as playing classic video games.

    However, the latest Raspberry version, the Pi 4, got un upgrade that can finally serve as a real desktop PC. The great thing about installing a Linux distribution is that now you can acquire the 2GB version for $35 instead of 1GB version of RAM for the same price.

Ubuntu/Canonical: The State of Robotics and Buzzwords

  • The State of Robotics – March 2020

    Damn it March. 2020 was doing so well. The biggest news last month was the dramatic escalation of COVID-19. We won’t go into any detail, I’m sure you’re seeing enough of that. But due to the outbreak, the state of robotics this March has been, heartwarming. We have seen a surge in online learning platforms, companies, startups and communities rising to the challenge. Members of open-source communities across the world are doing great things, with and without robotics, to support whoever they can. In this blog, we first want to highlight at a few responses to COVID-19 using robotics. And then it’s back to usual programming, highlighting robotics work and projects we have seen or done in March. If we have missed something in particular, please reach out to robotics.community@canonical.com and let us know.

The cataloging of free software

The Free Software Directory is a collaborative catalog of software aimed to be the primary source for representing all free software. Each free program has its own page in the Directory from which it is possible to study the evolution it has undergone in both technological and legal terms through a chronological system similar to that of Wikipedia. Each catalogued program is distinguished by one or more aliases, and accompanied by a huge amount of information, which goes beyond the pure needs of the end user. Snapshots of the graphic interface, detailed descriptions, change logs, links to social pages, and lists of licenses and dependencies are examples of all the useful information which can be carefully attached by users to each page. Everyone can freely subscribe to the Directory and create new pages, but only the pages reviewed and approved by administrators become visible and indexable. Administrative approvals are always made according to strict rules aimed at preventing the spread of proprietary content. As on Wikipedia, each user can have a self-approved personal page, where they can define their identity and discuss with other users. Users can also include sub-pages on which to publish their thematic articles, and any tools useful for the daily life of the Directory. User access rights are assigned to active users, and all those who demonstrate that they have the necessary technical skills and wish to devote themselves daily to the care of the pages have a chance to be welcomed onto the staff. This serene and flexible organization, based on bonds of trust built on facts and adherence to well-defined common ideals, guarantees that the technological and social development produced by the project is gradual but unstoppable. Thus, any investment of time by volunteers is amply repaid. The project has proved to be a clear success, so much that over the years it has received funding from UNESCO, and is still supported by the Free Software Foundation. The portal boasts the participation of more than 3,000 users from all over the world. Since its creation, it has accumulated more than 80,000 verified and recorded revisions for posterity in the chronology of the MediaWiki pages, all of which are dedicated to facilitating the essential freedoms in more than 16,000 free programs. The portal's ability to adapt and survive was possible not only because of the technical creativity of the staff, but also by the solid ideal at its base. By guaranteeing maximum visibility to free software, it has thus rewarded developers who freely employ their knowledge for the good of humanity. The transition to free licenses is indeed a moral duty of every developer, and the Free Software Directory is deployed at the forefront to facilitate it with great benefit to the world's cultural heritage.
